Synopsis

Montreal: one month before the Covid shutdown. Michael returns from Mexico with a nasty bacteria that lands him in the Emergency Room waiting for treatment. His two best friends, Lou and Pat, drop by to keep him company. The three gay, Italian men discuss everything from Covid to being gay at 60, to triumphs and tragedies and ultimately to the plight of John, Michael’s husband, who is riddled with Alzeihmer’s and living in a CHSLD.

Steve Galluccio’s At The Beginning Of Time is a love letter to his late husband, Yves, which chronicles their journey navigating this cruel, degenerative disease together…yet apart.
